Our motivational survey highlighted that easily available support would be a motivator for depositors to contribute their teaching materials into a repository. Support with rights issues is particularly important because of the confusion over rights that exists within UK Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). We have identified possible support that depositors and end users could receive.
Some potential evaluation criteria have been identified to assess the licences that we have put in place. We aim to evaluate the experience of the depositor and the end user and assess each licence in terms of suitability and accuracy.
